May Crowning is a traditional Roman Catholic ritual held during the month of May.  It is a solemn procession and at the beginning (or closing) of the procession a statue of the Blessed Virgin is crowned with a garland or crown of flowers honoring Mary as “the Queen of May.” There is a special honor attached to being chosen to crown the statue.

This was the May Crowning in 2021 at Saint Benedict's (FSSP) parish in Chesapeake, Virginia.
